My thoughts we'd need to switch default supported version from java8 to
java11, and, if that's possible, continue to support java8.  If that's
not possible to continue to support java8, we'd need to drop support
of that version of java, in any cases premium support for that version
will be finished shortly, in March 2022.

I'd like to add a note here: there are many frameworks support java11+
only (i.e. no support for java8) and dropped support for java8 at the
moment (I'd like to point to at least to JavaFX).

Thank you.
